Request TNR VoucherRequest Voucher

Due to staffing shortages, the voucher delay is approximately three [3] months.

Through grants, gifts, and donations from people like you, Long Beach Animal Care Services can offer spay/neuter vouchers on a limited basis.
  • Vouchers are provided on a first-come, first-served basis to residents of Long Beach & contract cities of Los Alamitos, Cerritos, Seal Beach & Signal Hill.

Whether you own a pet, have found a pet, are conducting TNR activities, or you are a rescue organization that has taken a pet from LBACS, you qualify to receive a voucher.

  • How Does the Voucher Work?

    Pet owners receive the voucher, either through email or direct mail. They make an appointment at a participating veterinarian for services. They give the voucher to the clinic and pay the remaining balance for services. For example, if the clinic charges $150 for a cat neuter, then the owner would pay the remaining balance after the voucher is applied. If the voucher is for $60, then the owner would need to pay the clinic the remaining $90 at the time services are rendered. The clinic sends the voucher to LBACS who then reimburses the clinic for the amount on the voucher. Voucher amounts vary depending on the voucher recipient.
